Parents can dress babies in the onesies for their trips home, and keep them as a reminder of overcoming health problems during their NICU stays.

As a distraction from the non-stop munching, attendees can catch live bands jamming out along the canal, watch chefs share their tricks during interactive demonstrations, and visit family friendly attractions that keep even the youngest of visitors entertained.
Nominated as one of Metromix's best bars in 2011, Taps & Dolls matches a medley of appetizers, sandwiches, and pizza with more than 44 draft beers, including craft brews and big-brewery ales. As bartenders loosen the taps, a line of flickering flat-screen TVs above the bar lets patrons cheer on their favorite sports teams or bellicose cartoon animals while they quaff PBR or Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy. In addition to the 2-D entertainment, pool tables and arcade games—including Golden Tee and Silver Strike Bowling —keep fingers busy in between bites of chicken wings or fries, and a dance floor pulses with the beats of an all-request DJ Thursday–Saturday.
